  • Rethinking what the holidays mean to you can reduce stress

    Look around you -- what do you see? People are rushing around getting ready for the holidays.
    It’s all too easy to get yourself stuck in the same old stressful cycle year after year. Many of us, it seems, fail to recognize this self-destructive pattern and come to dread the holidays.
    Perhaps this feeling is, in part, due to a lack of conscious thought about what the holiday season really means to us. If we can take this into consideration, then we might be better able to spend time doing what we really think is important.

  • Kentucky’s fourth Constitution stands test of time

    Kentucky officially broke away from Virginia in 1792 to become the 15th state to join the Union. The first order of business was to do what the country, itself, had done just several years earlier: Write a Constitution.
    It was in Danville, not Frankfort, where the state’s leaders gathered to write that first foundation of our state govern-ment. Kentucky replaced that document twice in the next 90 years. In 1891, the current and fourth Consititution was approved by voters.

    So, from mid-August to the end of November, it was like living in Southern California – sunny and unseasonably warm weather, with so little rain we had a severe drought.
    Now, just barely into December, we’ve had our first major snowstorm of the winter on Saturday and plunging temperatures with wind-chill factors taking them into single digits – and possibly below zero by the time this issue goes to press.
    It’s pretty amazing, I think.
